We recently had the pleasure of spending a wonderful week at SHSC to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday with an extended family group ranging in age from from 45 to 80+. All of us had spent many prior summers together hiking and backpacking. After taking advantage of the many beautiful hikes available right from camp (particularly Mitchell Peak and Seville... More

If you go to the sequoia high sierra camp you are in for a treat. FIRST.. it is a BETTER AND PRIVATE version of a high sierra camp (google that) ... where you have your own tent cabin and mingle with guests over meals as part of the experience. If you expect this to be some fru fru lodge it... More

We came to the Sequoia High Sierra Camp with friends to celebrate a birthday, and after four wonderful nights and days we decided it is truly the best of both worlds: My beloved high Sierras were just outside our tent, and after hiking through mountain meadows and high peaks all day we came back each night to amazingly fine cuisine,...

My husband and I treated ourselves to a weekend stay at SHSC in Aug 09 and loved it there. The facility itself (hike in) is beautiful. The grounds are impeccably clean. The tent cabins are decorated so nicely and the beds were very comfortable. The outdoor shower after a long hot day of hiking was the best shower ever. The... More

We spent 3 nights here the weekend of July 24 and had a completely wonderful experience. The atmosphere was relaxed and beautiful, the food was exceptional (the chef is incredibly creative, with each of the 5 courses every night truly special), and the location just can't be beat. Perfect timing, as the wildflowers were out full force, so every hike... More

The location is great, the food is really great, the hot showers are wonderful of course. The beds are uncomfortable- I've slept much better on a camping pad. The "king" beds are actually two twins pushed together, so at night when it's cold and you want to snuggle with your partner, it's extremely awkward. Did not feel that the room... More

Though SHSC likely began as a luxury camping experience, now the owners are cutting corners in a big way, even though rates are up 20% from last year. Plusses: Incredible location. Far from the madding crowd. Warm friendly helpful staff. Good food. Plenty of hot water. Showers open to sky. Minuses: Despite advertising claims, do not expect luxury. Everything is... More

Price: Expensive at $500/night for my wife and me. Includes food but not wine.

Appropriate behavior is expected from our guests. We did have to address the behavior of one group of guests last summer because they were disturbing everyone else staying at the camp. More

We had read about the High Sierra Camp in Sunset Magazine and decided to give it a try. We fit the magazine's description of the perfect prospect for the camp - former backpackers who'd grown used to luxury. We found the camp a wonderful vacation. The gourmet dinners were a wonder, the comraderie of the campers enjoyable, the welcoming iced... More

A friend and I , both avid hikers, felt that Sequoia High Sierra Camp combined the best of two worlds: the serenity of an isolated backcountry tent camp along with luxurious comforts and fine cuisine. And it was only a one-mile hike from where we parked the car at the end of the paved road to reach our eco-friendly camp.... More
